Please don't reply to this thread until after I reply to it myself.

My plan is to attach a photo (not link to one) and then have my server log requests to this post every 15 seconds and check for an "Image Thumbnail". This is how I will do it:
while true; do date; curl -s[number_goes_here] | grep -E 'ImageThumbnail|id="Comment_'; sleep 15; done | tee -a test.log

We know that replying to a post will make the photos show up, but this will test if they show up on their own after a certain amount of time.

  • So strange. The photo was there immediately. I don't know what Vanilla is doing when the photos fail to show up.

    is it me, or does anyone else find it somewhat useless that most pics are being uploaded in a way where they each need to be clicked on to be viewed at any decent resolution?

    your pic above is 484x645 pixels, yet displays as 96x128 unless you click on it

    when someone posts a decent number of pics, it becomes a click-fest.

    and apparently it's taking photos a while to upload for some.  it might be that people are uploading at comparatively huge resolutions. i see some pics here that are thousands of pixels wide. this one of yours may have loaded quickly because it simply wasn't huge (it's only 108k)

    in my case, i have my pics hosted at photobucket, and they are sized 600 pixels wide, are maybe 300k max.  i upload them using PB's 'direct' link, they show instantly, and they display at full resolution.

    here's one uploaded by the 'direct' link (using the little photograph icon on the comment box):

    source file is 600x800 pixels and displays (on my end) at 600x800 pixels, 199k)

    here is the same pic at the SAME resolution right-click copied and then pasted directly into the window :

    here is the same 600x800 pic uploaded using the "attach a file"  link below the comment box:

    and here is the ORIGINAL 2048x1536 photo uploaded also by 'attaching a file'

    i can also directly paste the huge 2000+ pixel pix into comment box, but it says "body required' and refuses to post

    far better to copy-paste RESIZED (meaning, not giant) pics directly into the comment box, OR to upload them by using this button and a direct link (pics hosted at picasa, photobucket, etc.)


    here's the link to use on photobucket

    I agree, it's a pain to have to click on every pic. I still think you did a great job on the dining room BTW

  • If you link images they are always instantly available. The only time there has ever been a delay is when people attach them using the "Attach a file" link under the editor box. However, as I just learned, it seems that there is not always a delay.I could try a full res photo. I just don't want to create a new thread because there is no option to delete a thread.
